Happy ChatGPT Anniversary! Who is Open AI's Competition?
30-11-2023
Happy ChatGPT Anniversary! Who is Open AI's Competition?
It's been a year since ChatGPT was released (yeah, feels longer than that doesn't it?). We’re going to look through it’s achievements, and then run a few episodes taking a closer look at the competition hot on OpenAI's heels So this will be the first in a short 5-part mini series where we’re talking about the alternatives to Open AI - given the Fiasco which has dominated headlines for the past 3 weeks - details of which are still emerging. Some stats on ChatGPT from the past 12 months ChatGPT was an overnight success, attracting one million users in the first five days of its launch, according to Sam Altman.Today, the chatbot has more than 100 million users.OpenAI’s website is visited more than 1.5 billion times every month, according to SimilarWeb data as of September.Nearly half of Americans have heard about ChatGPT, according to a recent poll by YouGov.In February 2023, OpenAI released ChatGPT Plus at $20 per month. Plus users can access GPT-4, while the free version of ChatGPT is powered by GPT-3.5.OpenAI is valued by private investors at up to $90 billion. That’s nearly 35 times what the company was worth two years ago.OpenAI’s headcount has more than doubled since launching ChatGPT. Currently it employs about 770. Using AI on youtube - see what Alex Pap was laughing so hard at at the start of this episode https://www.youtube.com/@genieai/podcasts Topics discussed: GPT store, Sam Altman, Dario Amodei, Anthropic, Elon Musk, Greg Brockman, Darth Vader, Fired by the board, Open AI CEO Links: timeline of the Open AI Fiasco https://www.axios.com/2023/11/22/openai-microsoft-sam-altman-ceo-chaos-timelineOpen AI board tried to hire Anthropic CEO https://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2023/11/report-openai-tried-and-failed-to-hire-anthropic-ceo-to-replace-sam-altman/ --- Send in a voice message: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/using-ai/message
Non-Coder Uses AI Coding Tools / Code-Interpreter
19-11-2023
Non-Coder Uses AI Coding Tools / Code-Interpreter
We discuss: AI Coding Tools, Code-Interpreter, Python, Regex, Network errors, Machine Learning, ChatGPT4, HTML Parsing, Github Copilot vs GPT-4 In this episode, we delve into a fascinating experiment where I, Alex Denne, under the watchful guidance of ML Research Scientist Alex Pap, try to get AI to writing some regex that can be run locally on my machine using python, on millions of documents. The goal? To extract matching text from millions of HTML files. It all inadvertently unfolds into an intriguing journey of trial and error. For the no-code listeners, this episode offers first-hand insights into the application and limitations of AI coding tools and code interpreters (and why, for now, you probably still need technical help like Alex D did!) At the outset, we were greeted by a seemingly promising result - a neat CSV file with the right column names but no entries as the AI successfully claimed to extract definitions only to produce an empty result. In an attempt to further probe, the AI was prompted to read the first 100 characters for potential matches. Alas! In lieu of any found matches, it concluded the document must be lengthy and gracefully tapped out. In addition, we had to deal with several network errors that may be attributed to the reported DDoS attacks on OpenAI. After multiple hits and misses, we decided to start afresh with a new approach. We didn't exactly strike gold, but we learned a lot. Through this episode, we touch upon topics like ChatGPT4 and the wonderful feature of 'dragging and dropping' files into GPT-4 Turbo.

Microsoft Copilots Everything at Ignite 2023 Event + New Notion AI Beta
We discuss: Microsoft, Microsoft Copilot, Copilot for Azure, AI technologies, Microsoft Ignite 2023, CRM Assistants, CRM integrations, Generative AI for Enterprises, GPT Store, Open AI, Word Add-Ons, Excel, Dynamics 365, Copilot Studio, Satya Nadella, Sam Altman, Notion AI, Notion's New Q&A feature, What Powers Notion AI (Spoiler: It's GPT-4). No Rafie today - but we press on. In this episode, we discuss the new offerings from Microsoft concerning its Copilot series, which uses generative AI technologies. During the Microsoft Ignite 2023 conference, the company introduced the Copilot for Azure, Copilot for Service, and Copilot in Dynamics 365 Guides. We also discuss the launch of Copilot Studio, a platform that offers tools to connect Copilot to third-party data. The Copilot for Azure, similar to Google's recently announced Duet AI in Google Cloud, takes the form of a chat-driven assistant for cloud customers, helping with configuration suggestions and troubleshooting potential issues. Copilot for Service integrates with CRM software for customer service use cases, while the Copilot in Dynamics 365 Guides is designed to summarize useful information for frontline workers in a variety of industries. We also discuss the new update from Notion, a note-taking app enhanced with AI. Its new 2.35 update introduces a new feature called Q&A, which is currently in beta testing. This feature responds to your notes in the form of answers, making it easier to manage tasks, timelines, and priorities. (Or does it?)

Links Watch this on Youtube AI News this week Sam Altman’s abridged testimony (Twitter): Senate sub-comittee hearing in full: Sam Altman Testimony on TikTok Genie AI Linkedin Mentions: Sparks of AGI Microsoft Paper OpenAI open source model EU AI Act Crazy things this week https://mealpractice.com/generate - Effortless meal planning with AI-generated recipes Elon saying OpenAI wouldn’t exist without him. Discussion Points AI generated opening statement by Richard BlumenthalSam Altman (OpenAI), Gary Marcus (Uber, Robust.ai), Christina Montgomery (IBM)Senate is aware they don’t understand this enough to legislate on itOpenAI is making significant efforts towards safetyOpenAI advocates for a committee to regulate AI development for large companiesElection fraud seems to be a major concern for OpenAINew, better jobs will be created according to OpenAI Prompt hacking tips Be succint and specific! Prime the language model by providing a persona for it. Asking the model to think through its response step-by-step “Let’s think step-by-step” Providing clear context: Offer concise background information for guidance. Use Cases: Definition explanations, historical event summaries, concept descriptions. Specifying the output format: Indicate desired answer structure explicitly. Use Cases: Generating lists, step-by-step instructions, summarizing long texts. Using explicit instructions: Request specific detail or critical thinking. Use Cases: Debating pros and cons, analyzing biases, evaluating arguments. Redundancy and rephrasing: Reinforce information by reiterating questions. Use Cases: Clarifying ambiguous topics, extracting specific details, verifying facts. Temperature and token settings: Adjust randomness and output length. Use Cases: Creative writing, focused summaries, generating multiple response variations. Iterative refinement: Refine prompts based on previous responses. Use Cases: Troubleshooting, problem-solving, narrowing down complex topics. Prompt engineering: Craft effective prompts using templates or examples. Use Cases: Analogies, translating complex topics into simple explanations, generating structured responses.
